    D.W Frauenfelder began writing stories at the tender age of very young and his first novel was the critically acclaimed by his teacher Dawe and the Typhoon, about a boy from the South Pacific who has to shift for himself when his family is wiped out by a storm Recently, Frauenfelder realized that Dawe and the Typhoon was probably written in imitation of the Newberry Award winning novel Call It Courage by Armstrong Sperry, though he has no recollection of reading this book Frauenfelder has followed up this homage by writing novels inspired by such diverse influences as P.D Eastman author of Go Dog Go , Else Holmelund Minarik author of the Little Bear series , Ursula LeGuin author of the Earthsea Trilogy , Homer author of the Iliad and the Odyssey , and Herg author of the Tintin graphic novels He lives in Texas with his family and pet pygmy hippopotamus, Etwart.

  • At first I was not sure what to make of David Frauenfelder's 'Skater in a Strange Land'. I was attracted by the slightly zany description - US ice-hockey player takes job in an island that is only sometimes accessible by air or sea, and in between times is off somewhere in another dimension. But then sober moments took over, and I started to wonder at my purchase decision. I know nothing at all about ice-hockey, except that like all sports it uses a unique and arcane vocabulary. I wasn't very su [...]


  • This author employs a unique writing style that keeps you engaged and moving forwards. The story is told in a very straightforward manner through the eyes of the main character which not only draws you further into the story but allows you to see the world from that particular POV. Not only was this story well put together but it was also interesting and extremely unique. Being Canadian, hockey is hockey, but Frauenfelder gives it a definite twist here. By combining the fantasy genre with contem [...]


  • As a huge hockey fan, and someone who enjoys urban fantasies, I had high expectations for this book. And I did end up enjoying it. The idea of a regular hockey player becoming a superstar and living a fairy tale kind of life was very interesting. However, there were some issues. I wasn't sure that there needed to be perspectives from Kadmus. Those chapters felt as if they slowed the story down. It also took me a while to get into the fantasy - though I'm not really sure why. The romance and char [...]


  • Frauenfelder has created a tantalizing parallel world rich in humor, quaint without preciousness, often sentimental but never mawkish. Along with the gorgeous details of food and festivals and sports and literature, l adore notion that a society could choose a slower, gentler way of life without doing it out of religiosity. He has made his protagonists' characters loving and convincing. Their courtship is comforting in its wholesomeness yet somehow all the more passionate, caught up in a whirlwi [...]


  • I've decided I'd like to try living in Borschland.There, the only vice is hockey; the snow falls beautifully and people eat heartily; and poets get paid. The police don't carry guns. I think this American would like to take her chances there and even risk a phase shift that keeps me there for many seasons.Fantasy novels are not my usual cup of tea; I find even the great Tolkien tedious with his detailed descriptions of landscapes. What Frauenfelder does so well is give you just the right detail [...]


  • I really enjoy reading fantasy novels and I also enjoy reading books about sports. For this hockey starved fan D.W. Frauenfelder's Skater in a Strange Land was like a dream come true!Skater in a Strange Land , apart from the talking bears, foxes, phase shifts and the like could actually be written about any average athlete with dreams of playing in the big time……Sherm leaving home to travel to Borschland in order to further his career is a journey many of us has taken and I felt a certain ki [...]
